When asked to name a shortlist of the most important watches ever made, everyone who knows anything about the topic HAS to mention the Omega Speedmaster Professional and this Omega Speedmaster Ultraman (Speedy Tuesday MkII) is one of the most special of their special editions. The Ultraman edition was limited to only 2012 pieces, all of which sold out in just 1 Hour, 17 Minutes and 53 Seconds.
In 1970’s Japan there a was a highly popular superhero series called ‘Return of Ultraman’ and there were various key facts about the series that are relevant to this watch:
As a nod to the original 1960’s watch from the series, the Ultraman features the Dot Over Ninety (DON) bezel insert and applied dial logo of the Pre Moon Speedmasters, while the orange accents throughout the design are the same shade as the Monster Attack Team suits.
To recognise Ultraman’s three minute limitation, the first three minutes of the three o’clock chrono subdial are coloured orange.
The box of the Ultraman is octagonal as a reflection of the MAT’s table and the strap changing tool is a model of the Beta Capsule (neat little connections all the way you see). The end of the tool also houses an ultraviolet light which when shone on the dial, reveals an otherwise hidden silhouette of Ultraman’s head in the small seconds subdial at Nine- all in all this is a superb ownership package that has been very cleverly thought out by Omega and the guys at Fratello Watches (home of Speedy Tuesday).
This watch is in virtually brand new condition with the remainder of the Omega warranty with everything that came with it from new from the huge list above – it is unpolished and unmarked.
